 Remove the starter then and lock flywheel with a podger bar
Thanks. Is a podger bar a crow bar?


has a flat tip on one end and a tapered round one on the other, so you only need one tool to pry things apart  and align holes.


A short piece of angle in the ring gear wedged against one of the starter bolts works for me.


You can buy flywheel locking tools that look like two pivoting crowbars, but they don't work when the gearbox is still bolted to the engine.

Haynes only gives removing the crankshaft pulley two spanners - easy job - but it seems to be not trivial.

a "podger" is a spanner with a pointed handle .. the point is put in misaligned holes and use to pull them into alignment ... .....

But more commonly a podger/heel bar  ;) https://www.amazon.co.uk/MultiWare-150-500mm-Podger-Slipper-Lever/dp/B076ZJMHQW
